    Re: Caldwell Style



    IMO, all Caldwell, or any other coach for that matter, can do, is put his players in the best possible position to win the game. We haven't even seen a single call from him so far, so it's somewhat pointless to debate what he will or won't be able to do. What I believe is that he will do a better job than Cam Cameron when it comes to making in game adjustments, using more of the play book and hopefully more of the middle of the field, sensing who is hot and who is not, taking input from the players, and forming a better working relationship with Joe Flacco. If any or all of those things come to be, then Caldwell will be a marked improvement over Cameron.

    This!! But the key is talking more often and openly.

    Especially if Norv or Hugh are unemployed.
    Hiring Norv Turner would be an egregious error. They need to get away from that entire washed up school of offensive thought.

    You know what QB struggles as a result of awful protection schemes? Philip Rivers.

    Give me a young gun who wants to be an innovator as opposed to one of these hacks whom the game has so clearly past by.

    Outside of two seasons (this season and 2008 -- both injury ridden seasons), Norv's offenses have been stellar. He was always a top 5 OC as well.

    Not sure where you're getting this "washed up" stuff. Unless you're relying on Cam's version as a comparison, which wasn't anything close to what Norv runs.

    Reasons to feel uncomfortable about Caldwell:

    Offensive coaches working with Manning only needed to know one thing. How many creams to put in Manning's coffee every morning. Manning ran the offense.

    Reasons to feel confident about Caldwell:

    Coached his team to a Superbowl, which is a hell of a lot more than Cam did with the Dolphins.

    Not necessarily true. Should Harbaugh flame out again in the playoffs. Don't be too surprised if Harbaugh is out and Caldwell is installed as the new HC. It is a possibility.

    Highly unlikely.

    By getting rid of Cam, even if it wasn't his call, he still bought himself more time, more chances.

    And with ALL the injuries we've had, he's got a ready made excuse to explain away any collapse--especially if we lose MORE guys along the way.
    We've reached the point where several practice squad guys are now starters.

    That's never good.

    My first thought after reading this was no way, Biscuit wouldn't fire Harbaugh, he hired him, and they've made the playoffs every year since then. But then I remembered how he fired Billick, after promising he'd be back. By his own admission, he just woke up one morning and changed his mind. So I guess anything's possible.

    No, it's not.

    I agree it's very unlikely, but saying it's not possible is a little too strong. Cam getting fired with three games left was unlikely too (I'm referring to the timing, not whether or not he should have been canned).

    The Harbaugh getting fired part is unrealistic enough. The part where Jim Caldwell would be our head coach next year would defy the laws of physics.

    Bisciotti is not going to fire his HC after his fifth playoff appearance unless there's some crazy flame out combined with a catastrophic playoff loss and losing the locker room ala Billick.

    So yes, technically there's a possibility. Just like there's a possibility my wife will concede to having a threesome tonight.

    LOL -- point taken. I'm just very literal. Impossible is a strong word for me.

    Zero chance that Harbaugh loses his job after this season. ZERO.
